completed for ‘chi she’, an artistic group founded by zhang peili and geng jiangyi, archi-union’s scheme involved replacing the roof with a lightweight timber canopy. part of the roof has been elevated to both increase gallery space and allow for external views of the sky. as the complex brick façade could not be achieved with conventional methods, the design team utilized robotic fabrication techniques to convey the vitality of both the exhibition space and the wider neighborhood.
the exterior walls feature grey green bricks recycled from the previous structure, which have been reconstructed with a robotic mechanical arm to generates the undulating surface. the robot’s control and precise positioning enables the ancient brick material to meet the demands of the 21st century, while establishing connections between humans, machines, and material matter.
